“Great stay...nice rooms....yummy breakfast!”
Reviewed 3 January 2010

We stayed here 1 night on our drive up the California coast. While the room was on the small side, it was nicely decorated and the fireplace in the room was nice. The kids also appreciated the homemade cookies that were left on their pillows. Breakfast the next morning was very nice and included freshly made waffles, cereals, fruits, yogurts and pastries. We would definitely stay here again.

I took my mother here for her 70th Birthday the week of October 28th, 2009. The room was everything I'd hoped for, with fantastic views of the ocean and the northern cliffs. On my mother's birthday the staff even brought her a birthday cake to the room while we were out sight seeing, which was very touching and way and above my expectations. Every one of the staff was friendly and always happy to see you, ready to tend to your any need. We ended up eating the breakfast buffet every morning, which was just perfect for us. This was a place that made my memory with my mom a life time event which I'll hold in my heart forever; thank you!

We had been camping near Santa Barbara and decided to stay in Cambria and go to Hearst Castle the next day. We found this hotel on trip advisor and decided to stay. The hotel staff were the most helpful of any place I believe we have ever stayed. As an example, I asked where we might find a laundromat in order to wash our sleeping bags. The hotel said not to bother that that would be happy to wash the bags - which they did and delivered to us in the morning. We had a wonderful room on the second floor looking over the ocean. The bathtub was a bit small for my tastes and the TV just average. But, the location was great and the hospitality was impressive. Will definitely stay again.

Stayed in Cambria just one day. This is a delightful spot for views and relaxation the hotel is deceptively bigger inside. We had side facing sea rooms which were excellent value for the money. Touches of free cookies and coffee and complimenary breakfast with fresh waffles would put much larger hotels to shame. Staff helpful and friendly stay with confidence.

I've been traveling to Cambria since the 70's and stayed at almost all of the hotels on Moonstone Beach. The ocean view room (117) was a wonderful experience. Left the window to the patio open hear the waves over night- slept like a baby. The breakfast was perfect: OJ, bagels, hot waffles, hard boiled eggs, cereals with milk, coffee, 20+ types of tea, peanut butter and jelly for toast...etc.
This was a special weekend since I proposed to my lady at San Simeon pier and returned to this room to have dinner and plan our new life together. Friendly staff and warm environment. You can walk across the street to the boardwalk and have your feet wet in 2 minutes!
WARNING: beware about the pizza delivered to the rooms...it is horrible and they overcharge!!
other than that we loved it!

Read reviews on line for this inn and we were not disappointed at all. Our room faced the ocean on a quiet street. Waking up and watching and hearing the waves break outside our window was a perfect way to start the day. We will be back.

we got there at sundown which was incredible. Sand Pebbles is right across the street from the ocean and an extremely charming place. they dont have too many rooms, so book in advance. when we arrived, Dean at the front desk was very welcoming and walked us down to our room to show us how to use the fireplace and heat, as the night was starting to get chilly...they even had tea and cookies for guests until 9pm. the room and bathroom were very clean and functional. if you sleep with the window open, you can hear the surf. in the morning the included breakfast was wonderful, from waffles and fruit, to granola and fresh blueberry or chocolate chip scones. after breakfast you walk across the street and down the path along the water which offers breathtaking views. overall a great experience and i would absolutely stay there again.
